  • Scrub and dry the potatoes - there is no need to peel them. Most of the nutrients are immediately below the skin.

  • Cut the potatoes into quarters boil the potatoes in water for 5 - 10 minutes, until just softening on the outside, then drain.

  • Brush the potatoes with olive oil.

  • Bake in a preheated oven, gas mark 5, 375F, 190C, for one hour.

  • After half an hour and again after three quarters of an hour, brush the potatoes with olive oil.
